I subscribed to Garden & Gun magazine a couple of months ago (after it was recommended by our friend Elizabeth) and was thrilled to receive my first issue this week. After finally finishing Ellen Gilchrist’s Nora Jane, and before diving into Dolly, I picked up the magazine and read it from cover to cover.
As Ben can attest, I am a bit of a magazine junkie. I think I subscribe to at least 12 and probably buy a few more at the stand each month. I have neither a garden nor a gun, but this magazine is definitely a standout for me. From the coverage of the Avett Brothers and scuppernongs to the piece about firefly conservation and the feature on Archie Burchfield and croquet, I think Garden & Gun is delivering on their “Soul of the New South” promise. Who knows? Maybe it will lead to a new hobby.
